during this legislative session, we're going to begin to answer those questions together. let us do everything in our power to ensure that connecticut never again suffers such a loss, that we take real steps to make our kids and our communities safer. last week, my administration announced the formation of the sandy hook advisory commission, comprised of experts in mental health, education, law enforcement, and first response. we may never know what motivated the events at sandy hook elementary, but that won't stop us from working to prevent future tragedy. over the coming months, the commission will come together to make specific, actionable recommendations in the areas of school safety, mental health services, and gun violence prevention. this session, i know there will be others that take action on these issues, and i applaud those efforts. the more resources we can bring to bear on this issue, the better. working together we can and will affect real change.
